May 2020

This month will see five planets at a near standstill, four because they have either just turned or will turn retrograde this month and in one case, because they are turning direct. It is in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart that Pluto turned retrograde late last month, with Jupiter turning retrograde here on 15th May. Just to keep things balanced you have Saturn turning retrograde in your work sector on 11th May, Venus turning retrograde in your career sector on 13th May and Juno in retrograde motion in your income sector until 27th May. This will maintain a balance between work and play but there is additional support available from 5th May. This is when the lunar nodes shift and this will see the North Node return to your career sector and its partner the South Node return to your home and family sector. Always in opposition and always working to maintain balance, this begins a policing of a balance between your home and professional lives through to January 2022. However, with even the planets across the income, work and career fronts slowing down and especially once Mars leaves your work sector on 13th May, you are more than ready for this. This will see Mars return to your relationship sector and this makes both Ceres' return there late last month and a Full Moon in your communication sector on 7th May a lot more significant. It was in the closing days of April that the dwarf planet Ceres returned to your relationship sector for the first time in four years, with a chance for a deeper dive into your relationship needs and priorities. This will give Mars something to fight for when he returns on 13th May. This also makes the Full Moon on 7th May a valuable chance to first ensure the communication lines are open, especially as you have no planetary activity on the communication front.


Week beginning Monday 25th of May 2020

Both in your personal and professional lives, things get off to a good start this week, with a chance for a crossover between the two. Especially when it comes to personal and professional networking, friendship and relationship building. For where things get off to a good start is on the professional front but also on the friendship and relationship building fronts, with conditions on all fronts continuing to improve as the week progresses. The week begins with the Moon in your career sector and while it will leave on Monday, this was always going to allow you to begin the week with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go. However, this was no ordinary visit but wraps up a New Moon that during the Sun's early days here has given career matters the green light. Yet this comes at a time when the doors are also open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts. Meanwhile, the conditions for friendship and relationship building start out good and then continue to improve all week.


Wednesday 27th of May 2020

It is not often that an asteroid takes centre stage or has the ability to play in the same league as the big boys but that all changed when Venus returned to your career sector early last month. Since then, in retrograde motion in your income sector, the asteroid Juno has become a pivotal player in the doors that have opened to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts. Juno's direct turn today will take nothing away from that but will allow for new income potential as well.

About Virgo

Information about your birth sign


Virgo is the sixth sign of the Zodiac, ruled by the planet Mercury. Virgo is the second sign ruled by this dualistic God, who also rules over Gemini, where his energy is expressed through the element of air and the mind.

In the earth sign of Virgo, Mercury becomes more discerning and critical about what he has learned, applying astute attention to detail and striving for perfection. Through your sign he offers himself in service to the earth, in artistic, practical, material and mundane ways.

You are one of the humble workers of the zodiac and you don't mind rolling up your sleeves and getting on with it. You'll do it neatly and with exactitude, because that is your way. You have an innate sense of order and a keen eye for precision and you take satisfaction in doing what you do, to the very best of your ability.

You are something of a perfectionist and you often strive for purity. This gives you a more than passing interest in health and hygiene, as well as a desire for cleanliness. It's not a foregone conclusion whether or not your immediate surroundings are neat, clean and ordered, but you'd definitely like them to be!

You sign is a mutable, restless, nervous and changeable one. The ruler of Virgo was a God with wings on his feet, so your restless spirit needs some change and variety in your working day and in your life.

As an earth sign, you're very much at home with mother nature and at times you can do a very good impersonation of her too!

There are many Virgo's who are secretly the power behind a throne. Your sign and your nature are known to be introverted. You're naturally shy and retiring, so you're quite happy to work behind the scenes, and let someone else have the praise or attention.

The Virgo instinct is to be useful, and you seem to never tire of helping others, personally or professionally. Virgo doctors and nurses abound, also medical herbalists, nutritionists, dietitians, therapists and alternative therapists. If we don't find you in one of those professions, you're sure to be knowledgeable in at least one of those areas.

With your keen observation skills and fine attention to small detail, you can also excel in the arts, putting something of beauty into earthly form is an expression of Virgo, as is any craft where you make something beautiful or useful with your hands. Everything you do will show your love of order and symmetry, even your handwriting, which is probably neat.

You get along best with the other quiet, humble and introverted signs like your good self. Those are the earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn, and the water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

If Mercury was not in the same sign as the Sun when you were born, this will modify the experience and expression of your Virgo energy. If you'd like to know more about your horoscope, one of our astrologers will be happy to help. You're always helping others, it might be good to allow someone to help you for a change!
